Art the homefinder's spot of the week

The living room has plenty of space, two sofas, a coffee table and TV.

The kitchen has plenty of storage space.  WILL BAXTER

There are some nice shady trees in the yard, which is tiled, the street is quiet and the house is well laid out with windows giving natural light to all four bedrooms.

Utilities and service:
Standard charges apply for electricity and water. The owner, however, provides free cable television and a high-speed internet connection is available at a standard rate.

There are no security guards, but the house is very close to a major police station and the area is considered to be very safe. The fact that there are policemen going by all the time is an added security feature.

This lovely villa is in a quiet street just west of Monivong Bourlevard. The long arm of the law is very close by, so there are never any problems on the street, and it is not far from supermarkets, restaurants and shops.

This villa is great value. The owner is only asking for US$700 per month, which is quite cheap for a villa of this size and quality.


The villa boasts four good beds, and cupboards in three of the four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms also have air-conditioning, the dining table is solid timber with six matching chairs, there are two large, soft sofas, a small refridgerator and a gas stove in the kitchen as well as plenty of storage space.  The living roomis large enough to entertain and there are also small coffee tables and a timber sideboard.

The owner has just had all the appliances checked and everything is in fine working order. If anything breaks down or stops working the owner has tradesmen on call to come and make repairs. This owner takes pride in his place and any repairs get done quickly.

As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
